I am a recreational runner working in a medical research institute in Kisumu. My enthusiasm for running was kick-started by my boss who was 22 years older than me when he ran past me in one of our frisbee fun games.
The route I am sharing is an interesting one; it was my first full marathon attempt and I wanted to achieve it on a little tough course which traverses 3 counties of Kisumu, Nandi and Vihiga. The route starts from the gate of the newly launched Jomo Kenyatta International stadium in mamboleo kisumu, and joins the Kisumu-Kakamega highway all the way to Majengo in Vihiga and back to the stadium's gate. Along the way you will find small markets Kiboswa and enjoy the huge rocks of Vihiga.
